Salehi: Iran Reliable Partner for China

“The independent Iran has great potentials and can be a reliable partner for China in various areas including energy, economy, trade as well as consultations on regional and international issues,” Salehi said in a meeting with Chinese Vice Minister of Foreign Affairs Zhang Zhijun on the sidelines of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) meeting on the island of Bali, Indonesia, IRNA reported Thursday.

Salehi further pointed out that a new world order was emerging and called on independent countries, including China, to increase their participation in international affairs.

The Chinese official, for his part, said that China seeks strategic ties with Iran and called for more cooperation with Tehran in politics, economy and energy.

He went on to say that Iran is a key partner for China, adding that Beijing was ready to boost trade transactions with Tehran beyond the current volume of $30 billion per annum.

Zhang Zhijun said that Iran and China shared similar views with respect to regional developments and that Tehran and Beijing could play a significant role in the international arena.

Both officials also condemned the West's double standards on the recent developments in the Middle East and North Africa.

Before heading to Indonesia to attend the NAM meeting, Salehi paid an official visit to China, where he held talks with senior Chinese officials.

The 16th ministerial meeting of the 118-member movement opened in Bali on Wednesday to discuss leading global issues, including human rights, climate change, pandemics, food security and development.
